Welcome to The Joan Kenley Show
The Joan Kenley Show has arrived on KQKE 960 AM – “The Quake”, San Francisco’s home of Air America Radio. The program premiered on Saturday September 9th at 9:00 PM, and beginning September 16th will air every Saturday at 5:00 PM.
For the opening show, Peter B. Collins – a mentor and senior member of the production team – interviews Joan with humor, interest, and sensitivity. They have a lively exchange about launching The Joan Kenley Show and branding her format as ‘Conversation Radio’.
You’ll hear why Joan was invited into in the San Francisco market – and how The Joan Kenley Show is new and different for radio listeners.
This introductory show contains excerpts from three of her programs over the last six months:

Recommending this show host
I'm glad I tried this show again, because the first show I tried had audio problems. The Joan Kenley Show has turned out to be one of the most interesting, one of the most eclectic, talk radio shows I have listened to, exposing me to a lot of great ideas, organizations, and knowledge.
This "welcome" show is a good introduction to the host and the show format. My favorite aspect of all the Joan Kenley shows is the surprising amount of useful and actionable information that is conveyed on a multitude of topics, and how much relevance so much of what I've learned has had to my daily life.
So many other shows offer grand ideas that are interesting to ponder, but that have no concrete usefulness. Or a lot of useful information, but on a very narrow subject - like car repair.
This show is different because it touches on so many facets of my inner and outer worlds. Health, pets, politics, the arts. A big plus - I can download the show to my iPod and listen any time I want to - or as many times as I want to - free of charge. I love it. A great addition to talk radio!
